I live here, so sadly I have gone back to a restaurant that doesn't need to be visited even once (though in all fairness you should at least give a place a second chance.) Very poor ethnic food, not just because it's the oily Americanized...More

We love this restaurant and always eat here several times when we visit Kauai. The prices are very reasonable and the food is very tasty. I especially like the green papaya salad. Neither my husband nor I have ever had a bad meal here. They...More

This is a small take-out place in the Princeville shopping center. Great to go for lunch and you can eat in the outside area where there are tables and chairs set up. There are lots of choices and I enjoyed a curry with vegetables that...More

Absolutely the worst thai food I've ever tasted and probably the worst food in Princeville. My husband and I ordered food to go. When he went to pick it up, we discovered that they only take cash. No biggie. He went to Foodland for cash....More

Soups were big which was good but other than that nothing really impressed us. We had the cashew chicken, Kung pao, fried rice, and tom yung goon soup.

We ate here while on a trip to Kauai and the food was wonderful and very authentic. Loved it. Service was great too. You can sit in a common area and listen to live music which is wonderful.

Checked out a local steakhouse first, and didn't feel like refinancing my house to pay for dinner, so we left and found Tamarind Thai Restaurant. Food was pretty good, and, compared to other places in Princeville, was easy on the budget.

We had the stir fry shrimp. Just a few shrimp and veggies mainly green beans. A little disappointed. Soups more Chinese than Thai. Spring rolls very good. Would probably try something different and give a second chance. The redeeming factor was musician playing in the...More

Thai food cooked and served by Thai people. We enjoyed the service and the selection of food. Four of us had a selection of favorites and everyone enjoyed it. Check it out right behind the True Value Hardware store in the Princeville shopping center.

The food was average, nothing special. The Mexican place next door is much better and busier with the locals.
